A month of education, outreach, and action for Hill Country water.

Spring in the Hill Country is a time of blooming wildflowers, flowing creeks, and (hopefully) the arrival of long-awaited rains. This spring, the Hill Country Alliance (HCA) is proud to announce the first annual Spring Water Revival – a month long, springtime celebration of water in the Hill Country.

Throughout April, we will dive into the many ways water revives our communities, spirits, and our hope for the future through programming that focuses on education, outreach, and action. Join us for events, activities, and news celebrating the Hill Country’s water—one of our most precious resources.

After ten years hosting the Rainwater Revival – a family-friendly, one-day event – the Hill Country Alliance is excited to expand beyond rainwater and highlight the many ways water revives, renews, and reconnects us with community and place. This month-long campaign will cover all things water – from our region’s iconic rivers and swimming holes to the groundwater beneath our feet to the very infrastructure bringing water to your sink.
